Intro to Web Mapping [Online]

Map of Devastating 2003 Heat Wave in the Netherlands Observed from MODIS Satellite. Mehdi Aminipouri (PhD Candidate in Geography at SFU)

You’ve likely used Google Maps, Yelp, or Craigslist, which all have integrated web map elements, but have you ever thought of creating a web map for your research project? An interactive web map is a great tool for both data exploration and communicating your research with a wide audience, academic and public alike.

The workshop will begin with a basic overview of technologies, principles, and terminology related to web mapping, such as map tiles and web services. The remainder of the workshop will introduce you to using ArcGIS Online to create a web map.


ArcGIS Online. You do not need to install any software but need to send email to to request an ArcGIS online account at least one day ahead of the workshop if you wish to participate the hands-on part.
